PRACTICE RULES

Also - you need to organise a key or entry to the track a few days prior to your practice...don't expect to rock up on the day and expect a key...our committee have lives as well lol. The track is not automatically open.

You need to be a fully paid up member to be able to practice.
You need to pay your $20 practice fee prior to practicing, after you have submitted the form below.

2021 POINTS SERIES RULES

Results after 2 Rounds here.

Held over 3 Club Days
* Must attend 3 out of 3 meetings to be eligible for a trophy
* Every heat counts, no dropped races for the series
* Highest points wins
* Must be a current Kartsport Tokoroa Club Member to obtain points. You can become a club member on the day.
* There is no ability to move up an age group at any time during the series
* Trophies - Cadet, Vortex Mini Rok, Juniors - all get a trophy to keep, Seniors - trophy for 1st 2nd 3rd only.


How points are calculated -
The results from each heat are recorded from Speedhive and the non-member, non-series-competitors are removed.
Then its 20 points for 1st place, 19 points for second and so on.
It doesn't matter where you finished in the race on the day - eg, if you finish 8th overall in a race but were the 2nd club member in the points series then you get 19 points for that race.
This year with the CIK format events, the qualifying heat is also counted


TYRES and RUBBISH.

A reminder that tyres are NOT to be left at the track or put into the rubbish bins. They cost a lot of money to dispose of.

If you leave tyres at the track you will have your membership revoked immediately and potentially you could be banned from using it forever.

We are not a rubbish transfer station. You must take all rubbish and tyres away with you. You have already agreed to this rule when you accepted the rules as part of your membership renewal.

We will be installing cameras at the complex in the not so distant future and if you are caught dumping your tyres and rubbish at the complex then you will lose your membership.

Thanks in advance from the Committee.

CONCRETE PIT SITES: - for all new people to the track, the concrete sites are owned by the people that paid for the concrete and will more than likely be there on Club Days to use their site. There could be sites available, we will try and advise what numbers they are before the Club Day. Please don't set up camp on any of the other concrete sites as you will probably be asked to move.




CLUB CHAMPS 2021
This year Club Champs will be held on one race day - TBA

You are very welcome to come along to any Club Day regardless of it being a points series or club championship. Catch the action, see the format, learn some skills....and....DEFINITELY BRING YOUR KART.

We will open the track over the lunch break and after racing so you can practice what you have been watching. Also, a lot of racing members will be there and will be only too happy to offer technical and racing advice.

If demand is there we can open the track for you at other times during the day if you wish...we are flexible so please don't hesitate to ask for Terry Palmer or Marin Vucich or Russell & Gaye Hoskins or Graeme Lambert or the chick on the gate Sheryl McIntosh in the first instance. We all hang on the concrete opposite the entrance to the grid area.

CLUB INFO:

Click here for an Excel kart set-up sheet where you can record all your data for each meeting - a great resource to look back at see from past events what works and what doesnt. You can print the second page on the back of the first page so you can record lap times, rpm, temp etc for each race and lap so you see all the data for a meeting on one page. There is also a page to record your base set-ups. Best to go 'save as' when the prompt comes up, save it, then open it in Excel.

Lap records (as recorded by the AMB lapscoring system) are here.
